A Handy Wine Chart for Food Pairings

A Handy Wine Chart for Food Pairings

February 21, 2013 1

Choosing which wine to pair with which food can be an arduous task. Sometimes it is better to match the flavor of your meal, sometimes it is better to give it a bit of contrast. However, as taste itself is always subjective, what could constitute a perfect pairing for one could easily fail for another. So with your combinations it is recommended to experiment on occasion to see what you actually prefer. Then, when you recognize similar tastes in others you can respond accordingly.

That being said, many of us just don’t have the time to explore and experiment. You need to pick out a wine for a dinner or party you are attending, stat. So what to do? Well, with this guide, it can be as simple as pick and choose. Most food groups can be easily assigned to different styles of wine, from there it is just a matter of choosing your brand.

Use this as a starting guide but do remember to experiment with your own pairings. Perhaps you will find something that doesn’t play into this guide that you absolutely love.

    The chart makes pairing look simple and fun. However, a few months ago I got two bottles of tomato wine as a gift from Canada. I couldn’t imagine the taste of those things and didn’t care much to open them. I actually thought about gifting them to a friend who’s into anything weird. Then last week I went to Toronto and somehow came across this article on Omerto, the tomato wine. There are some pairing suggestions, however, real thing may be a challenge.
